This auction is for a Pietro Beretta Model 86 semi-automatic pistol in .380 ACP The pistol was made in Italy and imported into the USA by Beretta USA. This is a double action/single action design with a thumb safety that locks with the hammer either down or cocked. This allows the user carry the pistol “cocked and locked”, locked with the hammer down, or unlocked with the hammer down requiring just the double-action trigger pull to fire the pistol. Interestingly, because the barrel is a tip up design, the pistol can be fully loaded without ever drawing back the slide, which makes the pistol easy to operate for those with arthritis or other weakness of the hand. The pistol is blued and features three dot sights (rear sights are drift adjustable for windage). Grips panels are checked wood and very attractive. Finish is almost flawless. It does not appear that this pistol was ever carried and was shot very little. It comes with three factory magazines (8 rounds) in excellent condition, but no box or papers. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
